What Are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are one of the most sought-after cosmetic dentistry treatments. In fact, you’ve probably seen them on your favorite celebrities! But what are they exactly? Simply put, they are thin shells of high-quality dental materials (like porcelain). They are custom-made to fit perfectly over your teeth, concealing imperfections like stains and chips in the process.


The Process of Getting Veneers

From start to finish, the entire veneers process can be completed in as little as two appointments! Naturally, the first step is the consultation, which is where Dr. Glamm will learn about your smile goals and determine whether or not veneers are the right option for you. If they are, she will solidify all of the details of your treatment plan before carefully removing a sliver of your enamel. After that, they will take impressions of your teeth, send them to the lab with the specifications for your veneers, and provide you with a temporary set in the meantime.


After a few weeks, your final veneers will arrive at our office, and we will carefully check them to ensure they are perfect. At this point, you will come in so we can meticulously adhere each veneer. Once this step is complete, your new and improved smile will be all set!

Veneers FAQs

Question cards for facts about veneers

Veneers in Upper Arlington can give you a picture-perfect smile, but they are a big commitment. Don't worry if you have a few concerns because Dr. Jayme Glamm will explain everything during your initial consultation. While you wait for your appointment, here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions about veneers.

Are Veneers Permanent?

Veneers aren't permanent because they need to be replaced eventually, but they aren't reversible either. The process of applying veneers requires a small amount of enamel to be removed. Although this doesn't harm your teeth, your enamel will not grow back if your veneers are removed. As a result, your teeth must always be covered by restorations, whether veneers or crowns. Thankfully, you won't have to budget for replacements often because veneers are meant to provide long-lasting results with the correct care, like good oral hygiene.

How Many Veneers Will I Need?

A veneer can be bonded to a single tooth, such as to cover a chip or crack. However, the goal of the procedure is to provide noticeable results by enhancing the overall aesthetics of your smile. Therefore, your cosmetic dentist in Upper Arlington will recommend bonding them to the teeth visible when smiling. Every situation differs, so there's no way to know how many veneers you'll need without first examining your mouth. Some patients need as few as 4 or 6, while others require 8 or more.

How Long Do Veneers Last?

A veneer can last for a decade or longer with the proper care. Many factors will affect the lifespan of your new smile, like your oral hygiene routine. Using non-abrasive dental products to brush twice daily and floss nightly will help you get the most from your investment. It's best to break any bad habits that can damage your veneers, like using your teeth in place of scissors or chewing on pencils. Besides caring for your smile at home, visit your dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and checkup to ensure your veneers last. Dr. Glamm will keep your teeth and gums healthy. She will also check your restorations at each appointment to ensure they last their longest.

Do Veneers Feel Natural?

Porcelain allows veneers to be thinner than ever before, so they won't feel heavy or bulky. Etching the surfaces of your teeth ensures your veneers sit flush, so there won't be any uncomfortable ridges or ledges. Each veneer is carefully crafted to fit your tooth like a glove. Although it can take a couple of days to get used to them, you may soon forget they aren't part of your natural smile.

Can I Use My Dental Insurance for Veneers?

Dental insurance rarely covers elective procedures, like veneers. However, you can use your coverage for certain aspects of your treatment plan, like your consultation or any preliminary procedures, such as a dental cleaning. If your veneers are medically necessary, your insurance may pay some of the cost after meeting your annual deductible. A member of our office will work on your behalf with your dental insurance to maximize any applicable coverage.
